If you’re going to get a case, might as well get one that adds a little extra to your phone, right? This new PowerSkin case for the Samsung Galaxy S III gives you three features in one – not a bad deal for the relatively reasonable price tag.
First and foremost, the new PowerSkin case for the S III is just that – a case, made of silicone. It’s a little more bulky than most cases, so if you prefer keeping the slim profile of the S III, this one might not be for you. The bulk is for a good reason, though – the case packs in a 1500 mAh battery that can extend the phone’s talk time by 2.83 hours, and standby time by 97 hours. The external battery can be switched on and off with the press of a button on the case. The third feature is NFC – NFC signals will be able to pass through the case, allowing for data transfers.
This multi-purpose PowerSkin case is selling for $80, which is still up there for a case, but not a terrible deal with the extra battery life you’re getting.
